The Illinois Big Ten Battle
The Illini made the short trip to Evanson to face Northwestern this afternoon.
Northwestern is coming off of somewhat of a losing streak with 3 consecutive losses while Illinois is potentially still dealing with injured players.
On Tuesday, Illinois demonstrated the dept of their bench, specifically the underclassman. Underwood played freshman Luke Goode for a total of 28 minutes, which proved to be an advantageous move for the Illini. Goode ended the game with 9 points and 2 assists.
No. 24 Illinois ultimately beat No. 10 Michigan State 56-55. The win serves as a reminder of the potential that the Illinois program possesses and their ability to win regardless of who's on the court.
